“Beautiful setting, wonderful food, great place for special occasions!”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

You must try the ceviche - it was best appetizer we had on our trip! The service was great, very attentive and easy to communicate in English. The location is amazing and breath-taking. Call yourself to make your reservations and try for sunset, we were able to get in for that same night.

“amazing location but food fair and slow service”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

this is one of our favorites as the location is exceptional. There was only one other table occupied but plenty of staff. staff just not that attentive and surprised that food was lukewarm when it arrived. I have had some good meals here. This location has the best opportunity on the island to be #1 but it doesn't. Prices a little high for the service levels and quality.
